Managing expectations and the stakeholders that we have to deal with can be challenging, particularly with the additional complexities of working remotely. During this session, we will provide tips and strategies on how to manage stressful situations.

This workshop, developed & delivered by Birdsoup, is designed for everyone who has to manage stakeholders both internal and external. By attending you will gain the chance to explore:

  • managing up: how to improve engagement with your managers and clients, say no and deliver bad news.
  • managing down: delegating effectively and recognising people-pleasing.
  • how to set boundaries – and how to stick to them.
  • practical tips on better communication, both face to face and virtually.

Who should attend?

Anyone who manages multiple stakeholders.
